    Everyone is going to be ok. I just got released today at about 4pm from the hospital.
    3 are in for surgery today for spinal surgery in varying degrees.
    I broke 3 processes in my spine. Hurts less then my ankle which is swollen and very very tender, a little colorful but ok.

    On crutches till the pain stops and the swelling goes down. Can't bend over though lol.

    I was in the back of the bus with the 2 worst cases including the guy that was air lifted. A last second decision to sit on the right of the bus probably saved my life. Even though the passenger side of the bus experienced the most damage.

    I don't know why that cut off half the link but the one I just posted works.

    Seriously. Not like a sky blue gigantic bus is easy to see or anything....wow. So sorry you and others were hurt. Hope the person that was air lifted makes it.

    Wow, glad you're ok considering. Hope you heal quickly.
    Speaking from experience, that ankle is likely to bother you far longer than your back will :(

    Well it was really nice of you to think about him when you're all stove up. Our American reservists sure have some class.
